Albert Einstein

Einstein's Work Place

All images are taken in April 1995 at Princeton University, New Jersey, USA by photographer Ralph Morse.

I can see that Albert Einstein and I have at least one thing in common - a desk with an overview of documents. Some call it a mess. It is definitely NOT. I'm sure Einstein and I would agree on that. :-)

I named my first cat Einstein. She was a semi-wild Norwegian Forest Cat and very intelligent.

A woman, the librarian Fantova, took notes from her conversations with Albert Einstein the last year or so of his life. I'd like to read those one day.

Albert Einstein also has something in common with my niece it seems, namely playing the violin. I bet my niece is better than Einstein was or could ever have been at playing this instrument, though. :-)

Albert Einstein was fond of sailing. I totally agree with him though it was an 'acquired taste' for me. Today I love sailing and have had several of my best moments in nature at sea. :-)
